QFN SocketEtched Spring Pin Socket for Capacitive Touch-key Sensor QFN used in Smart Phones

Socket your QFN40 using Extreme Temperature Socket with Superior Electrical Performance

BURNSVILLE, MN - September, 2010 - Ironwood Electronics recently introduced a new QFN Socket addressing high performance requirements for 0.4mm pitch devices - SBT-QFN-4008. The contactor is a etched spring pin with 34 gram actuation force per pin and cycle life of 100,000 insertions. The self inductance of the contactor is 1 nH, insertion loss of <1 dB at 7 GHz and capacitance 0.4pF. The current capacity of each contactor is 2.5 amps. Socket temperature range is -55C to +155C. Socket also features an IC guide for precise QFN edge alignment. The specific configuration of the package to be tested in the SBT-QFN-4008 is QFN, 5x5mm body size and 0.4mm pitch. To use, drop IC into the socket, place floating compression plate, swivel the lid, and apply down force using compression screw. This socket can be used for hand test and quick turn custom burn-in applications with the most stringent requirements.

These socket product lines have been designed to the JEDEC STD. MO-220 and are available for all standard configurations. Custom designs are also available. SBT-QFN-4008 socket features a unique contact design with outside spring and flat etched plungers that provide a robust solution for Burn-in & Test applications including excellent electrical signal integrity to meet the requirements of today's demanding analog, digital, RF, Bluetooth and telecom applications. The socket is mounted using supplied hardware on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses smallest footprint in the industry. The smallest footprint allows inductors, resistors and decoupling capacitors to be placed very close to the device for impedance tuning. The socket also incorporates a new quick insertion method so that IC's can be changed out quickly.

Pricing for the SBT-QFN-4008 is $494 at qty 1 with reduced pricing available depending on quantity required.
